With the works of Cao Fei, Richard Mosse and Paulo Nazareth, the exhibition EXTREME. NOMADS at MMK 1 focuses on different aspects of contemporary forms of nomadic existence and addresses the dissolution of boundaries in politics, economy, society, and culture. The artists from three continents are not only investigating the individual, social and political extremes that are a result of globalisation, but also their own artistic strategies move across and alongside these boundaries.

Aspects of the Documentary in MMK's Photography Collection

Whether on a smartphone, in the newspaper or on a computer – every day we experience our world through a flood of photographs. Many of the artists represented in the MMK Collection have explored media images and reinterpreted them in their works. They reflect on political topics that have been disseminated through images in the press, deconstruct the authenticity of press photographs, or create images for topics that previously defied illustration.
